Great food and good service (understandably a bit slow when busy). The waitress even offered to ferry us back to the villa when they couldn't get us a taxi!

With a youthful and elegant atmosphere, Piazza Restaurant is a well-located and pleasant place, where you can enjoy a meal full of Italian flavours.

In 2002, Angelo Bucciero moved with his family to the Algarve from Cambridge, England, where he already owned two successful restaurants.

And he opened his first restaurant in Santa Barbara de Nexe, which was inaugurated in mid-July, serving the best of Italian Cuisine - home-made lasagne, cannelloni and other pasta specialities, with meat, fish or poultry.

The specialities include:
.: Steak with gorgonzola and a brandy cream
.: Chicken breast stuffed with shrimp, served with lobster sauce
.: Shrimp marinara risotto and scampi with sauce.

It also has a wide variety of international wines.

Entertainment with Live Music every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.
